Summary
Draws on little-known Cuban history to tell a stirring story in poetry. Based on the diaries and letters of Swedish suffragist Fredrika Bremer, who spent three months in Cuba in 1851, the story focuses on oppressed women, the privileged as well as the enslaved, in three alternating free-verse narratives
Summary
Poems describe early women's right pioneer Frederika Bremer's life-changing journey to Cuba in 1851, as her path crosses that of Cecilia, a translator and slave, and of Elena, a rich girl who feels limited by her place in society
